The Nursery follows the Local Authority Child Protection Procedures. This means that any actual, suspected or alleged child abuse will be reported to the Social Care Department, and may be followed up by them.
Special Education Needs
Children with special educational needs have exactly the same needs as other children but with extra needs individual to each of them. Each child has full access to the Nursery curriculum which offers a wide range of experiences and equipment within a secure and caring environment. Additional support appropriate to individual needs is offered to help each child realise his/her full potential in all areas of development.
Lord Street Nursery is an Enhanced Resourced nursery to support children with special educational needs with additional staffing and resources.
We have regular visits from Speech Therapist, School Doctor and Educational Psychologist.
